One misconception I had before Grant arrived was that I would have a bit of free time. I mean, babies sleep a lot, right? So that should give me plenty of time to catch up on tv shows, read some books, and hang out. Ha! How wrong I was. When he sleeps, I have to juggle my priorities – taking a shower, doing laundry, and writing blog posts all top that list. I am still doing my best to read and spend some time for myself – even if I spend the time while I breastfeed with a good book. Here are a few that are topping the list right now.

I’ve enjoyed skimming through this book and getting back to the basics a little bit.

It touches on just about everything a novice runner needs to know, and also comes with a plan to get to running for 30 minutes. It just came out in stores yesterday, so it has brand new tips and tricks.
I can’t even pretend like I have even opened this book to start reading. The parenting books have been topping the list, but I really hope to get to this one soon! Here is the overview – it looks awesome!
Meet Martin, JJ, Jess, and Maureen. Four people who come together on New Year’s Eve: a former TV talk show host, a musician, a teenage girl, and a mother. Three are British, one is American. They encounter one another on the roof of Topper’s House, a London destination famous as the last stop for those ready to end their lives.
In four distinct and riveting first-person voices, Nick Hornby tells a story of four individuals confronting the limits of choice, circumstance, and their own mortality. This is a tale of connections made and missed, punishing regrets, and the grace of second chances.
What’s sitting on your night stand, waiting to be read?
